Meltham Golf Club was established officially at a meeting in January 1908 attended by some 60 men.
Over the years, the membership has increased and diversified so that in November 2009 there were 658 members - including 445 male players, 96 playing ladies and 62 juniors. Additionally there were 55 social members, often the spouses of playing members.
The club has gradually extended its land ownership now having enough land for 21 holes and the clubhouse has been constantly updated and extended.
Priority has always been given to improving the quality and condition of the course. However, this does not mean that other aspects of the club have been neglected. Indeed, Meltham has a reputation for comfort, excellent food and friendliness.
These, together with financial stability (the club owns the unmortgaged freehold of its course and clubhouse), makes Meltham well worthy of consideration for anyone thinking of taking up golf or transferring from their present club.
As Meltham is a members’ owned club, it is important that applicants for membership recognise the need to be courteous towards each other and visitors, fair in their dealings with staff and that they accept the need to abide by the club rules as far as dress/mobile phones are concerned. Your application will need the support of two members of the club, or if you don’t know anyone, you will be interviewed by a small group of senior members.
If you are interested in becoming a member, look at other areas of this website and download the application forms: come up to the club and talk to the professional, bar and waiting staff, as well as members. You can sample the quality of our food and drink after you have walked around the course. The marked public footpaths will give you a good overall view of the layout and environment. Gill Wright in the club office is a fountain of knowledge and can explain administrative requirements and provide appropriate application forms if you don’t want to download them.
The club’s financial year and subscription period runs from 1st February – 31st January. Subscriptions can now be paid monthly by direct debit for a small charge.
Once you have been accepted as a member you will receive a welcome pack, including the all-important members discount card for the bar, and a tour and 30 minute swing check and video analysis from the professional.
